For decades, cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) has been considered as the standard and most effective first aid technique for sudden cardiac arrest and has been taught in both classrooms and community centers worldwide. Despite such popularity and awareness, CPR alone cannot save a majority of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) victims. Most individuals who experience SCA have ventricular fibrillation (VF) which causes the heart muscles to beat rapidly and improperly in which CPR alone cannot provide effective results. It is where the role and importance of defibrillators comes in which renders electrical shocks and provides natural pacemaking cells a chance to re-establish the normal cardiac rhythm. A report by the World Heart Federation published in Nature Middle East stated that children in the Arab Gulf region are more prone to developing cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) than other Arab states. One in four adults in Saudi Arabia is likely to suffer from heart attack in the next 10 years, as per a study presented at the 26th Annual Conference of the Saudi Heart Association (SHA).
